Executive Summary

This paper is concerned with scaling decentralized Content-Based Publish/Subscribe (CBPS) networks for Internet-wide content distribution. A fundamental step for CBPS networks to reach the Internet-scale is to move from the exhaustive filtering service model, where a subscription selects every relevant publication, to a service model capturing the quantitative and qualitative heterogeneity of information consumers' requirements. In previous work, the authors described a service model allowing information consumers to express the maximum number of publications they would like to receive per service period and how to take advantage of such knowledge to pace the dissemination process.
